Arsenal will head into the next game in the premier league against Liverpool one point behind the visitor. When Arsenal host the Reds at the Emirates on Friday, they will hope to win and move into the top four on the log. With some injury news recently announced by the club, Arsenal will head into this match with some unregulated faces in the line up
Petr Cech kept his 9th clean sheet in the premier league this season and will want to add to that number against Liverpool. Liverpool was the reversed fixture earlier this season 4-0 at Anfield but the North London will hope to avoid that and seek a revenge on Friday night. Petr Cech will have to be at his best for that to happen.
Arsenal are expected to return to the three man backline for this fixture as it’s a game against a very fluid attacking Liverpool side. As such, the trident of Skhdron Mustafi, Lorient Koscielny and Nacho Moreal should be starting together. Mustafi will be returning to action for the first time since the game against Manchester United when he hobbled out injured.
Despite deep in form to Hector Bellerin, Arsene Wenger have stuck with the Spaniard but have dropped Saed Kolasinac for Mitland-Niles at left wing back.
The injury to Aaron Ramsey have given Jack Wilshere the opportunity to stake a claim in the first team in which he has started the last two league games for the Gunners. Xhaka partner Wilshere in the middle of the park with Ozil providing the needed creativity in the team.
There is expected to be a change in the attacking option going into this game. Alexis Sanchez form have dropped drastically and this might put his first team start against Liverpool in jeopardy. Danny Welbeck is in line to take is place in attack with Alexandre Lacazette expected to keep his place in the team.
